This is something we haven't done before - a job advert. It's not a regular thing, but my sons' old school More House School in Frensham, Surrey is urgently looking for some very special people and they need some help finding them. Please share this post where you are able to.
- Two full time Speech and Language Therapist (Band 5) at More House School
- Occupational Therapist (Band 6 – Part-time) at More House School
About More House School
More House is for boys 8-18 who learn differently. It is part-boarding. The boys here have lots of potential but have often failed to thrive or cope in mainstream school. At MHS, these boys discover that they can learn and enjoy doing so, leaving with qualifications they never thought they would achieve. Many arrive with speech, language and communication needs. Many require occupational therapy. Both are delivered timetabled and on site. The staff are friendly and there is an amazing community spirit in the school. Plus, the lunches are cooked by chefs from scratch on site.
The school has an Outstanding rating from Ofsted. These roles of Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapist are based in the school's fantastic Learning Development Centre
The Learning Development Centre is a purpose-built area, housed centrally in the school, where all direct therapy is delivered by fully qualified therapists and specialist tutors. Almost all boys in the school attend lessons weekly for between 2 and 8 half hour sessions, with support continuing through GCSE and A level years where necessary. Many boys have previously had negative experiences by being removed from class in order to attend support lessons, but at More House attendance in the LDC forms part of each boy's timetable, removing any need to be singled out or to miss lessons.

Here is a short film about the school to whet your appetite.
